How to empty the ORIG folder?

Postby jack bauer » Mon May 03, 2010 1:12 pm

Hi Everybody
every time the webmin shows a full Local disk space, I have to empty the ORIG folder which requires logging through winscp, then taking this path : /root/var/spool/asterisk/monitorDONE/ORIG because it contains all the voice recording so it is the main reason the memory is full
the problem is it takes a long time to open the folder and then to select all the items and deleting them, as winscp often loses connexion with the server so I have to reconnect again and again.
Is there any way to empty it by a written command directly through the server or putty or any similar software??
Thank you in advance

Don't you have similar lines in your crontab?

Code: Select all
### VICIDIAL clean ORIG recordings older than 3 days
0 1 * * * /usr/bin/find /var/spool/asterisk/monitorDONE/ORIG -maxdepth 1 -type f -mtime +3 -print | xargs rm -f

Another question came to my mind:
with this command how long does it take to delete the contents? is it instantly or does it take the same time? does it require server rebooting?
the 3 stars (***) in the command line, do they mean something specific, should I replace them by some other values, or should I just copy paste it to the server/putty??

cron:

http://www.centos.org/docs/4/html/rhel- ... tasks.html
http://www.google.com/search?num=50&hl= ... =&gs_rfai=

To edit:
crontab -e
with this command how long does it take to delete the contents?
Several seconds, depending how many and how large the files are.

does it require server rebooting
No.
the 3 stars (***) in the command line, do they mean something specific

Simplest way to do it manually is running the following command on the server:

rm -rf /var/spool/asterisk/monitorDONE/ORIG/*


This will delete all files in /var/spool/asterisk/monitorDONE/ORIG/.

Look and edit for the following entry in your crontab:

### remove old vicidial logs and asterisk logs more than 2 days old
28 0 * * * /usr/bin/find /var/log/astguiclient -maxdepth 1 -type f -mtime +2 -print | xargs rm -f
29 0 * * * /usr/bin/find /var/log/asterisk -maxdepth 3 -type f -mtime +2 -print | xargs rm -f
30 0 * * * /usr/bin/find / -maxdepth 1 -name "screenlog.0*" -mtime +4 -print | xargs rm -f


Adapt to your current settings.

Dear Gardo when I tried to do it, this is the message I have
-bash: /bin/rm: Argument list too long
then
-bash: -bash:: command not found

what to do exactly in this case??

Looks like you have tonnes of recording. Hehehe! Try this instead:

rm -rf /var/spool/asterisk/monitorDONE/ORIG/
mkdir /var/spool/asterisk/monitorDONE/ORIG/


This will delete the ORIG folder and all it's contents and then recreate just the folder.

this should provide results showing both "older than" and "in the last", so choose wisely at that point. 8-)
